Cyber security environment in India is fast changing due to growing realisation of threats of cyber-attacks and cyber-crimes.  With new digital initiatives the focus on cyber security gained enormous attention and interest. The security companies are understanding the underneath need, focusing in security monitoring, identity governance and administration, mobile and cloud security governance, advanced threat defence, application security, security policy and product development. Although, security industry in India is at nascent stage, but have also shown a great potential in recent past. Number of companies in this space has increased substantially over the past few years. Some companies that started from incubation centres in academic institutions have been able to self-sustain in a very short span of time. Some of these have grown and reached out to different geographies with their products and have captured a significant market share.

The security product market in India is growing at a very rapid pace: companies are going against all odds in the ecosystem, and at the same time creating  healthy ecosystem for the new start-ups to emerge and grow in the domain.
